Torrey Pines board seeks candidates

The Torrey Pines Community Planning Board (TPCPB) will hold elections on March 11 for seven of the 16 seats on the board. The board is an officially recognized local advisory group of elected volunteers who evaluate issues affecting the community. The board makes recommendations and communicates neighborhood concerns to the city of San Diego and the Planning Department.

Local residents and business candidates are encouraged to join the board. Major issues such as the Caltrans Interstate 5 widening project and I-5/state Route 56 connectors present an opportunity to get involved in community planning. The Torrey Pines board is a member of the Community Planning Committee (CPC) and reviews land-use issues related to all of San Diego. Another key function of the board is working with the city of San Diego Development Services Department in reviewing discretionary permits and helping to foster high-quality architectural and landscaping design within the Torrey Pines community.

The following seats are up for election: one business seat; one residential seat for Community Area 1; three residential seats for Community Area 2; and two residential seats for Community Area 3.

The bylaws stipulate that residential candidates must attend at least one board meeting before the election. Board meetings are held at 7 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month at the Del Mar Heights Multi-Use Room, 13555 Boquita Drive, Del Mar.
